It's easy to change which file types are allowed to show up (and are displayed) when you browse for files to upload through SWF Upload.  SWF Upload makes it easy to upload multiple files in PHP.

I just had to hunt through some source files until I found this in my SWF Upload config. (goes in the new SWFUpload() function)

  1. <script type="text/javascript">
  2.     var swfu;
  3.     window.onload = function () {
  4.         swfu = new SWFUpload({// File Upload Settings
  5.             file_size_limit : "8 MB",   // 2MB
  6.             file_types : "*.jpg; *.gif",
  7.             file_types_description : "Image Files (JPG, GIF)",
  8.             file_upload_limit : "0",
  9.         });
  10.     };
  11. </script>

The options for 'file_types:' and 'file_types_desciption:' will do it. Note the semi colon that seperates the *.jpg; *.gif; *.any_extension
